. a arthroscopeut -- a microscope to the health- care law. in addition to what we have seen with kathleen sebelius and marilyn tavenner, they may want againr from the top brass as to whether they want to update their thinking on a law. we may get more big picture stuff in december. host: more about life on the hill. here is "the wall street journal." thatg the point immigration, tax reform, a budget breakthrough, things are on hold or frozen. what does it mean? guest: the affordable care act takes oxygen out of the room. it is so politically potent. it affects everyone's constituents. they are getting the most calls on it, too. it provokes strong feelings. the agenda has come to a standstill, there is evidence that some of these things were at a standstill already. the affordable care act, that is how you fill the vacuum at a standstill. over the summer, when immigration was a big topic. when it became clear that that was stalling, the affordable care act came back with a vengeance. that was the issue everyone wanted to talk about. there is some truth that it gets in the way of everything else. al

.gov not functional. kathleen sebelius met with some of the so-called navigators in south florida, the website went down. >> this is a disaster. we have asked the american people to behave differently. when was the last time we asked the entire country to do something differently. now doing that it better be right and we clearly know it has not been. my concern is the war of anecdotes going forward. i can't get my old insurance. or i have cancer are so much more intense, than the positive anecdotes. so that's my big concern. the only shot the president has is and people won't be happy with it is what i call a five year narrative. two things will be happening. we'll lower the growth in health care costs which we're starting to see and more people will have insurance. but this is a five, ten year proposition. won't make people happy today. this at this point is only map. >> you can be right. the fundamental problem for him is what happens with democrats in the senate who are up for reelection. we might see in three or four years but that's not fast enough for democrats in the house or senate. the web

. the filibuster is gone. does that mean kathleen sebelius is gone? they can fire her and they have a filibuster-proof replacement for her whereas previous to that, it would have been touch and go? sebelius finished now? is that one of the implications? >> what's interesting, before, good luck getting anyone confirmed other than maybe rick santorum to be the head of h.h.s. it also plays in well with the whole i-pab. that was called the original death panel. the group of bureaucrats is going to try to lower medicare costs. now it's going to make it easier for obama to fill those positions. previously, even if he had not been able to fill those positions, it would have fallen to sebelius to be the one woman i-pab. he couldn't fire her then. that would completely ruin it because he couldn't get another h.h.s. secretary. it gives him a little bit more latitude. >> chris, how long sebelius going to last? i think we ran it again tonight. she's going out, she's in someplace around the country, talking to somebody and they're trying to dial up the system and the system breaks down while she's there, the

. on kathleen sebelius. what is the republican mission at this point? the website is making progress. it's handling more people, 17,000 people a minute. it's going to get better. obviously, it's better, since the last time there was testimony a week ago. what's the republican mission at this point? >> i think it's to create as much bad news and bad spin around the health care plan as they can to discourage people from going to it. it's sort of the last, you know -- last-ditch fight that they have. what's frustrating is that when you look at the individual states that have made this work, like kentucky, like rhode island, and then you look at these usually kind of states rights senators, and their own states had the chance to do this. they had the chance to make it right. they had the chance to do what rhode island did, and they didn't. they chose not to do it. they chose not to even try. >> they would -- >> so now they're blaming the federal government when they didn't even try to do it. if you're not going to do your job, you have got to be a little bit careful about blaming the people

. this is not the big issue for health care as we move forward. >> this is what kathleen sebelius had to say on the "the daily rundown." >> so it's a relatively small but for those people it's real. i think the president felt keeping the commitment people should be able to stay on their own plans is something he felt was important. >> so that was from an event in detroit today. clearly such an uncomfortable position for cabinet secretary. >> true. relatively few number of people, goes to the heart of the credibility how it was sold. not complicated, going on amazon, get a new plan, keep your plan if you like it. that has proven not to be the case. the bigger issue here, if young healthy people are not signing up, the whole thing doesn't work. if they are keeping to their own plans, which obama care in washington says are substandard it doesn't work. they have a website that doesn't work. so the big question is when does this start working. democrats on the hill doesn't know the answer to that, the president doesn't know the answer to that. >> as susan page was saying yesterday, when you start pulling on
